An interview with Kate Michelman, then president of the National Abortion Rights Action League (Now called NARAL Pro-Choice):

Q: What is your objection to requiring that women understand fetal development of the unborn child in order to make an informed decision regarding abortion?

Such laws force doctors and counselors to repeat inside abortion clinics the harassing comments that “Operation Rescue” and other protesters scream at women outside the clinic. Such laws jeopardize women’s health and violate the doctor-patient relationship by interfere with the doctor’s ability to tailor medical counseling and care to each woman’s specific medical needs.”
